Tickets for Secret Garden go on Sale!
A two-time nominee of England’s Olivier Awards for The Wind in the Willows, Will Tuckett will premiere The Secret Garden on August 8th in a special summer run. The two-act production brings Frances Hodgson Burnett’s popular children’s novel to life with a commissioned score by Jeremy Holland-Smith, British playwright Alasdair Middleton as librettist, and sets and costumes designed by renowned Tim Meacock, best known for bringing Hansel & Gretel and Jack and the Beanstalk to life on stage in the UK. A unique experience, The Secret Garden also includes puppets and an actor who will narrate. In conjunction with the Any Given Child initiative out of The Kennedy Center and the curriculum department of Sarasota County Schools, The Sarasota Ballet has formed a strong educational component with this production of The Secret Garden which will give students the chance to learn through art.
